Bone metastases from solid tumor origin are challenging to manage and require a coordinated multi-specialist effort. Skeletal related events result in a significant societal burden and the predominant goal of the orthopedic oncologist is palliation of pain and preservation of function. Given the wide range of clinical scenarios that may be encountered, controversies exist both within and among specialties. This chapter reviews the current landscape in the management of bone metastases with a focus on commonly encountered sub-sites including long bones, spine, and periacetabular metastases.
